Howard Zinn: 1922-2010 R.I.P.

Great guy and author.  One of my early inspirations with his classic, “A People’s History of the United States.”  A great peace activist.  Never forget how he expressed regret for dropping bombs from 15,000 feet on Dresden in WWII.  Died yesterday at the age of 87.  Rest in peace brother.

A timely comment from him on Pres. Obama:

“I’ve been searching hard for a highlight,” he wrote, adding that he wasn’t disappointed because he never expected a lot from Obama.

“I think people are dazzled by Obama’s rhetoric, and that people ought to begin to understand that Obama is going to be a mediocre president — which means, in our time, a dangerous president — unless there is some national movement to push him in a better direction.”
